Rapid provided Heritage stabilisation and remediation works to the two square brick chimneys on this site as well as adaptive re-use preservation works for the kilns. Custom steel frames were installed inside both chimneys after first dismantling and re-building many courses of bricks. Extensive mortar repairs and stitching was required. All bricks used on site were those salvaged from the site and originally fired on site. We protected and incorporated original machinery into the new design which provides recreational facilities for surrounding residents on the Newthorpe Estate.
